GYLERS WAS ONE OF THE 5IX HUNDRED IN XH£ CHARGE OF THE UGHT BRIGADE! Circumstantial Evidence | As gunfire echoed down the moin street, the citizens of Fryingpan ducked for cover. It was a couple of brave souls who saw a slender figure run out of Griffin's Gen- eral Store, leap astride a horse and head out of town. "It's Ace Griffin," they yelled. "He must hove shot his uncle!" Sure enough, Silos Griffin's limp body was found in the back store-room of the store. As Sheriff Hack Benson pushed his way through the crowd he was greeted by Doc Dover, the town physician. Doc drew the sheriff aside and gave him a brief report. "I see," said Benson. "Told anyone about this?" ' "No," was the Doc's reply. "And no- body's touched the body either." Hack grunted. "All right, Doc. Just keep the details to yourself for now." That was when Mike Hart, owner of the Silver Dollar Restaurant spoke up. "If was Ace Griffin that did it! He was always quarreling with his uncle about money. We saw him running out of the store right after the shooting." Benson frowned. "Well, no one actually saw him do it, so it's circumstantial evi- dence." Mike snorted. "Ever since you started taking that mail-order law school course you've been talking like a lawyer." Hack frowned and spoke to the crowd. "All right, men! I'm swearing in a possel" - it took most of the afternoon to run down the fugitive. By the time the posse arrived back with the prisoner, a crowd of angry citizens awaited Sheriff Benson at the jail. "Benson, I'm talking far the others," said Mike Hart. "We're here to save the county the cost of a trial." "I'm not standing for lynch law," said Benson, grimly. "Ace is going to have a fair trial. Men, you'd better go home. All you've got against him is circumstantial evi- dence." "Don't fry to bamboozle us with your smart lawyer's talk," said Mike, "when poor Silas is lying dead with three bullets in his back." And that was when the sheriff's gun turned on Mike Hart, "Mike!" said the sheriff grimly. "No one knew how many bullets it took to kill poor Silos — qr that he had been shot in the back. Outside of D»c Dover and me no one had that information except the killer.'' ''Are you accusing me?" said Mike in- dignantly. "I am,." was the sheriff's reply. "We'vo checked the records and we found that you owed Silas thousands of dollars for sup- plies — and you figured a bullet would set- tle the account." He nudged Mike with the gun. "You've been aching to get inside my jail, mister. Step right in. I've got a cell all ready." 1 Irvm" / MOID IT, VII 5 Br* r m^t>"I^^EH For two days, the three men watch the store in win and late the third pay... spAob's COWING TONIGHT.'
